As we are all compelled to stay at home in the past five months due to the threats of COVID-19 and a lot of shops and establishments have to close because of the community quarantine, most of us certainly turn to online shopping in order to get the stuff we need, just like the Kapamilya celebrities featured in this video.
Since not all of us have kitchen skills or have equipment to prepare the food we’re craving for, and there were probably instances when we’re too busy, tired, or lazy to cook, we tend to order food from fastfood chains, restaurants, or even our friends, such as Precious Hearts Romances Presents Los Bastardos actress Maxine Medina, Love Thy Woman star Kim Chiu, Sky Quizon, RJ Agustin, and Migs Villasis.
Aside from food, some of them also did their #OOTD shopping online, just like Kim, who also bought several home essentials and kitchen equipment, and “Hello, Stranger” actor Patrick Quiroz. RJ does the same as well, confessing that it’s one of his ways in coping from the anxiety brought by this pandemic.
Tawag ng Tanghalan hurado K Brosas, who recently held her 20th anniversary digital concert, orders clothes online too, such as sleepwear and leggings, and even bought samgyeopsal grill for she and her daughter Crystal could still have their favourite Korean barbecue at home.
Wonder how iWant ASAP host Maymay Entrata and AC Bonifacio are able to maintain their glowing beauty during this quarantine? Well, that’s because they make sure not to run out of skincare products by purchasing online! AC also buys clothes to complete her awra.
As his way of preparing for the new normal and being locked up at home for months, Kadenang Ginto actor Kyle Echarri revealed buying his whole personal computer setup online for work and gaming purposes. The same goes for Korean recording artist Yohan King who bought music equipment like keyboard, microphone, and speaker as he currently works from home and continuously hone his singing talent.
Apart from ordering food, Pinoy Big Brother Otso alumnus and interactive online series “Kumusta Bro?” star Sky Quizon also turns to online shops to order newest additions to his collection of ornamental plants now that he’s a certified “plantito”.
From being the first-ever champion of Idol Philippines, Zephanie Dimaranan became a first-time digital shopper when she ordered art materials, such as acrylic paint and canvas, in her pursuit of trying her hand on painting.
Also pursuing his passion in painting is University of Sto. Tomas varsity player and star of YouTube series “In Between: Sa Pagitan Ng Kumusta At Paalam” Genesis Redido, who buys art materials and even various designs of facemasks online.
Enchong Dee tried shopping online as well, but refused to do it again after he got disappointed with his initial purchase – water flosser that according to him only looked like a mini water gun.
PBB Lucky Season 7 alumna and “Hello, Stranger” actress Vivoree Esclito, on the other hand, confessed that she haven’t attempted buying stuff online yet because of the hassle it could cause considering that she’s currently in the province.
